    Hi,
    Thanks for checking out my post,
    We are trying to use non surgical methods of getting rid of bumble foot on our sweetest hen Brandy. My eyes just aren't good enough to cut on anyone anymore,..
    I am having a difficult time making new bandages every day to keep the medicine on,. she is a Dominique,. so medium size is what I need, but I can make large work!
    I need a pair of them,.. both feet have it,.. the rest of the flock is fine. If you have a pair, or even one, that you are not using and want to sell,.. please PM me!
    Thanks so much,
    Yvette

    Quote:Well,. the problem isn't the $ it's that she isn't making them anymore,.. so they are not available any other way,.. I can't find anyone else making them either,. if you know someone else that IS making them,.. I would be so happy to know where I can reach them!

    We are using GSE soak and a drawing agent,..with a poultice under the bandage,.. but it's twice a day,.. both feet and I can't see wrap well,. so it would just be wonderful to be able to slip on the shoes with the meds and be done with it till the next soaking. Thanks for checking my post.

    I agree it is hard to wrap both feet,mine had old bumble foot i kept her seperate and did not wrap the foot after failed tries.I am sorry i did not know she was not making them anymore,maybe i will try in the future.
